MCT Community Theatre executive director Michael McGill told the Missoulian, "Oh man, we made a mistake."
The issue was raised Friday in a letter to the Missoulian from Rory Page, of Clinton, who said he was offended by the reference, especially in light of the shooting of Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, of Arizona.
Several bloggers criticized MCT. However, director Curt Olds and others noted the pacifist executioner's target list is often updated to make it relevant. Olds says Palin was added because she is one of the most well-known people in the country.
